We believe that it's a conflict of interest when Internet service providers operate their own speed tests. A third party opinion is necessary and the provider shouldn't be allowed anywhere near the process. When providers host their own speed tests they eliminate the variables that you're here to test.
How Fast is Dedicated servers Internet Speed?

Test Your Server
This article will cover how to test a server's upload speed, as well as its download speed. This can be helpful with either benchmarking what your server is capable of or investigating if the server speed is related if your site is running slow. HostGator recommends using their command line interface tool because this results in a reliable external test connection. Testing from your local connection is likely to go through firewalls from your network which may not be configured to allow speed testing, and which are likely limited by your local internet connection speed. This would prevent you from knowing the full capacity of the server. You may also use the web interface for Speedtest.
Once you deploy a new cloud or dedicated server, you may be eager to test out the network speed to ensure you are getting what you paid for. Once upon a time, Mbps was the standard network connection speed for most dedicated servers. Times have certainly changed and ServerMania now offers dedicated servers with 10Gbps network connections and above. In this article, we tackle how to test the network speed of your server and what speeds you can expect. The short answer to this question is no. Several factors impact the ability to see a 10Gbps download speed on a dedicated 10Gbps dedicated port including testing server limits, server hardware, network overhead, etc. We go into each of these in detail below. That being said, even though you should not expect to see the entire port speed when testing to a single source, you can rest assured that you can fully leverage your 10Gbps port with ServerMania. These ports are completely dedicated to you and connected to dedicated 10Gbps transit. In real world situations where hundreds or thousands of connections are being made to your server, you can utilize the entire capacity of the server connection.
